Player Ratings as scratchy Reds win 4-1 to make Champions League semi

How did that end 4-1? Well, you could argue Liverpool outclassed Porto in both penalty areas, and thoroughly deserved that result. And you'd be able to present a justifiable argument. But for large parts of that game, it just didn't look like Liverpool were going to win 4-1.
